Eight reasons why we absolutely love Asha Bhonsle

Asha Bhonsle

She turns 83 today, and yet Asha Bhonsle shows no signs of slowing down. She is a singer who has had to face many trials and tribulations to reach where she is today, and her strength and dedication is truly commendable. She has sung more than 12000 songs in her entire career and yet she refuses to retire and wants to continue working as she said on her last birthday. This birthday will be doubly special for Bhonsle as Ahalya-fame Radhika Apte will be performing a dance on the famous songs sung by the soulful singer today in Mumbai along with Terrence Lewis.

Here are eight reasons to love Bhonsle more than you loved her before.

  • The first reason has to be the beautiful songs she sang in her prime like Aaiye Meherban, Deewana Hua Badal, Isharon Isharon Mein, Aao Huzur Tumko, Ude Jab Jab Zulfein Teri, and many more with O.P Nayyar. Then she became the voice of Helen with songs like Piya Tu Ab To Aaja (Caravan), O Haseena Zulfon Wali (Teesri Manzil), and Yeh Mera Dil (Don). The list just does not end.
